Academic activities can be found on the Chelsea Intermediate School Website on the left side of the web page titled “Student Engagement Websites.”
Additionally, you can find speech/language activities and materials by using the following link: https://www.fsd157c.org/page?page=392 or following the directions below and going through the district website:
I have provided students with packets and/or I have contacted each of you via email. My plan is to provide direct speech services via zoom or provide you with videos and documents consisting of speech and language activities.
You will also find speech/language resources under the “Cool Links” section of my teacher web page.
Thank you for your help and support during this time.

Reader's Theater: In the "downloads" section, you will find a document titled "Reader's Theater." This script consists of three characters. Your child should read through the script with two other people while using his/her best speech sounds. Have your child switch roles/characters with someone and repeat this again. If you are able to, print the script and have your child highlight his/her target sounds to serve as a visual cue/reminder.
ReadWorks Reading Passage: In the "downloads" section, you will find a document titled "ReadWorks Reading Passage." After your child reads through the passage, please have him/her answer the comprehension questions (scroll through the document to find the questions). There is an answer key at the very end of the document. Articulation students can read the passage and answer the questions aloud using their best speech sounds.
I Spy: In the "downloads" section, you will find a document titled "I Spy." Find a partner to play “I Spy” with. Describe the item/object in the picture on the second page of this document by using different attributes (i.e. category/group, function, parts, location).

Example: “I spy with my little eye something that belongs to the school supplies category/group, and you use it to write." Articulation students: describe the items using your best speech sounds.
